Office History − Cheney WA

The Inland Center for Contemporary Dentistry is deep in tradition having served Cheney and the greater Northwest for over 90 years.

Beginning with Dr. Oscar Johnson followed by Dr. Jim Johnson, Dr. Richard Roccanova and most recently Dr. Jacob Ridl. Our practice philosophy and quality of care is widely respected in the dental community. Many dental specialists and other general practitioners show their support as a continued source of patient referral.

Dr. Jim Johnson and Dr. Roccanova taught at the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry for many years and Dr. Roccanova is Visiting Faculty at the prestigious Scottsdale Center for Dentistry. Dr. Ridl is now presenting advanced treatment cases to local practitioner education groups advancing our commitment to continued education.

Dr. Roccanova came into practice in 1976 at a time when new technologies and treatments were beginning to transform dentistry. Although always maintaining a local family practice he excelled in advance implant and aesthetic reconstruction. Dr. Ridl has become the beneficiary of the many years of training and innovation to which Dr. Roccanova devoted his career.

Dr. Roccanova was forced to discontinue practicing dentistry in January 2013 due to an eye impairment;

“Dr. Ridl had been with me for 4 years when I was forced to stop practicing. Our practice and the high level of care we provide could not be in more capable and caring hands. Having known Dr. Ridl all my life I know our practice legacy is safe.”
